Comics By Request: People, Projects In Need Of Funding
By Tom Spurgeon
* so I guess the Neil The Horse project
could use some help, as in paying for all of the printing. The incentives are very modest in that even at the highest level of support it would take 150-plus supporters to carry that one to the finish line. I think that's a really admirable project, and I hope it gets over, although I'm pretty sure that was always a "we're going to lose $15K on this" going in.
* not comics: unless she's taken it down in the time between posting it and this column rolling out, this
should take you to a page whereby you can donate or buy things in support of cartoonist Julia Wertz's new passion for exploring abandoned buildings.
* I'm trying to find a central clearinghouse for Steve Niles-related auctions and the like, and will slip it into this post if I find one. This
is basically the eBay headquarters. This
is the guy running the eBay stuff. The direct paypal account is HelpSteveNiles@gmail.com -- that's what I used. Bleeding Cool
has the most recent summary-style article
. It looks like Niles is reasonably well-supported and has some work coming in so let's hope that continues as he and his move into a temporary living situation and gets things back in order.
* finally, there are some days left to give money to the Middleman revival
or DC's latest round
of Africa-related charitable work -- they are more than funded. DICE from that nice man Robert Clough
is not yet funded, and we should all think about giving something.
